Here’s a list of our favorite gear from our latest backpacking trip on the John Muir Trail.
Arc’teryx Motus Crew Shirt
Buying this shirt was a splurge, but it was worth it. Incredibly comfortable, doesn't get stinky, and handles moisture like a champ.
Outdoor Research Helium II
You never know when the rain or wind will pick up in the Rockies. Considering how small this is, there's no reason to leave it behind, even in good weather.
Suunto Ambit 3 Peak HR
Part of my daily carry. I can't say enough about this watch. GPS tracking, hear rate monitoring, pace and time, it really does it all.
Sony BC-TRW W Series Battery Charger
Sony doesn't ship a wall charger with their cameras. This is a little more convenient than plugging thousands of dollars worth of camera into the wall.
Sony NP-FW50 Lithium-Ion 1020mAh Rechargeable Battery
One downside to the Sony system is the short battery life. Be sure to keep a couple extra batteries around for long days shooting.
MeFoto A0350Q0G Aluminum Backpacker Travel Tripod Kita
Very lightweight and packable. Maybe too lightweight...
Peak Design Capture Camera Clip
This is a must have for any camera quiver. Easy attach and detach your camera from a backpack strap, your waste band, or anything else you want to clip it to!
Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS Interchangeable Lens
It's a bit heavy to carry all the time, but the longer focal length gives us some extra flexibility and makes big backdrops even bigger.
Sony 16-35mm Vario-Tessar T FE F4 ZA OSS E-Mount Lens
An excellent lens for capturing every bit of landscape during action sequences.
Icebreaker Sprite Racerback Bra
Comfortable and super functional bra made of merino wool.
